The World Health Organization’s Covax vaccine delivery program has purchased 550 million doses of the Sinopharm and Sinovax vaccines from China. What is said is that 110 million doses will be available immediately by Gavi, a public-private partnership that buys vaccines from rich countries and gives them to the poor.
The only problem is that both Chinese vaccines are less effective at stopping the spread of Covid-19. Data from Chinese studies on the effectiveness of their vaccine are questionable, as Jim Geraghty pointed.
You remember Sinopharm, don’t you? That’s the vaccine made in China that the tests have found prevented hospitalization 79 percent of the time! Oh, just remember that “the test was not designed and operated to show efficacy against severe pain in people with comorbidities, in pregnancy, or in people age 60 and older.” So, we’re not sure how effective the vaccine is in protecting the people who are old or who there are comorbidities, which are actually two of the groups most vulnerable to COVID-19. But look at the bright side: Sinopharm keeps four out of five young healthy people out of the hospital!
And then there’s Sinovac, which like Sinopharm, is good, good, ineffective. That’s the vaccine found by the Butantan Institute in Brazil to have a 51 percent effectiveness against symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection., and it is relatively less effective against both species.
Gao Fu, director of China’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, spoke about vaccines in April: “The effectiveness of existing vaccines is not high… The level of antibodies produced by our vaccines is lower than mRNA vaccines and the efficacy data are also low. I think it’s a natural conclusion that our inactivated vaccines and adenovirus vectored vaccine are less effective than mRNA vaccines. “
The next day, Mr. Gao was forced to retract the statement.
The evidence is in real -world trials from countries that have purchased more than a billion doses of vaccines in China – and many regret it. – READ MORE
